Norway evacuates US embassy area after package found
OSLO, July 31 — Norwegian police found a suspicious package under a car parked at the US embassy building in Oslo today and cordoned off a large part of the city's downtown area as a precaution.
Dozens of police officers evacuated the underground rail station near the embassy and sealed off a large perimeter near the embassy, located adjacent to the royal palace, a Reuters reporter on the scene said.
Police declined further comment and said it would issue a further statement. — AFP/Relaxnews
